Moose Poached in South Dakota

October 8, 2009.

The South Dakota Turn In Poacher's program, a cooperative effort between Wildlife Protection Inc. and South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Department, is offering a $1,000 reward for the identification and arrest of the person or people responsible for the death of a moose near Deerfield Reservoir about October 1.

According to Conservation Officer Blair Waite, elk hunters found the moose dead from gunshot wounds on Friday, October 2 in southwestern Lawrence County.  While moose are not native to South Dakota, the animal had recently become a welcome visitor to the Black Hills.  

Anyone with information on the bull moose case is urged to call a local state Game, Fish, and Parks conservation officer, a local law enforcement agency, or the TIPs line at 1-888-OVERBAG (1-888-683-7224).  Tips may also be submitted online through the South Dakota Game, Fish, and Parks Web site:

Those providing information through TIPs may  remain anonymous.
